A Rare Opportunity to Acquire a Restored & Very Desirable Series III Land Rover 109″ Station Wagon. First registered 14th August 1981. Finished in Marine Blue with contrasting limestone safari roof and wheels, this is exactly how the vehicle would have left the factory in 1981.The vehicle has been subject to a full in house restoration by ourselves, which has just been completed. The vehicle is in immaculate condition and drives very well. The vehicle has always been dry stored and has travelled very few dry miles since the restoration was completed. We also have documentation and photographs throughout the rebuild. This is a rare 12 seater vehicle that would be fantastic for a day shooting in the Scottish Highlands, some fishing at the lakes or even a long weekend camping. The vehicle is also matching numbers, totally original throughout and therefore eligible for US export. The vehicle is so practical and will be undoubtedly reliable for the long trips due to it’s recent rebuild.
The vehicle has undergone a thorough and comprehensive restoration, retaining as many original parts as possible. The chassis is original and in remarkably good condition for the vehicle’s age and all necessary repairs where carried out during the restoration. The rebuild has included the engine, gearbox and axles being overhauled. Correct station wagon door cards have been fitted throughout, the vehicle retains the original headlining which is in lovely condition. New brakes including wheel cylinders, brake pipes, shoes and drums. A new fuel tank, shock absorbers, new lights all round, new hoses, clips, door seals, mats, clutch, slave cylinder, master cylinder, new wiring loom, new servo, carburettor, coil, points, the leads and window channels. There is just too much to list. There has been no expense spared on this vehicle, if it needed replacing it has been and further improved. Nothing is required. Hundreds of hours have been spent on this restoration.
Also there are two nice extras fitted, fairey overdrive and fairey free wheeling hubs, which makes it a joy to drive on dual carriageways.
All the galvanising has been stripped and re done during the restoration the attention to detail is amazing.
As you would expect from a full restoration everything is in order, extremely clean with original stickers still in place. The original 2.25 petrol engine runs very well and has plenty of power and starts straight up even on the coldest of mornings.
A joy to drive and such fun, the vehicle will be supplied with a 12-month MOT with no advisories. Four-wheel drive and low range engage, as they should. The gearbox has been overhauled by a specialist.
The vehicle will be fully serviced including engine, oil filter, main gearbox, transfer box, overdrive, diffs and the swivels.
You will have to go a long way to find a better vehicle and we believe this is the best restored Series 3 109″ Station Wagon on the market today. This is a fantastic example of a 39-year-old Series Land Rover.
